Day 2. It's not Getting Easier

We are not so happy campers today.

--Appliances arrived just as we sat down to breakfast. Oops! They forgot the microwave. (It rolled in later.)

--David rolled in at 9:30. You gotta love British working hours. No Chris (he’s on another job--sounds ominous). No Barry (he’s going to the doc with his pregnant girlfriend).

--Flooring nightmare. Details are boring, but getting the flooring in will be much more complicated than we had been led to expect. (But the floor was never meant to be done this week, so I should not complain. But John Lewis flooring does not talk well with John Lewis kitchens.)

--You know the sort of tape that is supposed to NOT take off paint? Well, we used it on our bedroom and living room doors to try to block the flow of dust. Guess what? It does remove paint! Oh joy.

There is good news, however. The basic rewiring is done, and the cabinets are going up. They seem a little high to our short selves, but we are trying to ignore the stretch. Here’s a pic:
